Malvasia Nera 'Talo' 2020, San Marzano, Puglia, Italy × 2

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish 'Cantine San Marzano'.

An intense and complex bouquet of ripe red fruits combined with hints of spice. A full-bodied wine with delicious flavours of Morello cherry, thyme and vanilla notes through to a smooth finish. Huge bang for buck!

2

Rioja Crianza Rivallana 2018 Ondarre, Rioja, Spain × 2

Bodegas Ondarre was founded in 1985, with the aim of creating wines which showcase the region’s distinct terroirs.

Spicy fruit aromas are complemented by subtle notes of vanilla from oak ageing. Savoury and ripe fruit flavours combine on the palate resulting in a traditional Rioja style.

2

Château de l'Herbe Sainte 'Tradition' 2018, Minervois, France × 2

The delightful Domaine de L’Herbe Sainte, in the Eastern Minervois, is just on the edge of the delightful small village of Mirepeisset.

Bright, deep red with a very typical nose of black fruit, black olive, cedar and garrigue. On the palate, a dense fruit led wine with well-integrated tannins and the same, delicious rich southern range of aromas.

Description

CORKAGE NATURAL WINE CHRISTMAS CASE

A case of 6 great natural wines to enjoy with your Christmas celebrations!

Tour de Gendres Sauvignon/Chenin ‘Pet Nat’ 2021

On some of the most beautiful land in southwest France, Château Tour des Gendres sits in the appellation of Bergerac. The de Conti family has run the farm here since the early 1900s, turning the farmland to vines in 1986, and converting to organic in 1994.

It’s a very fresh, light-bodied Petillant Naturel,(Pet Nat for short) of just 11% ABV with a gentle mousse and a gentle touch of lees influence. Very fresh and grassy, with aromas of green apples and cinnamon and zippy, vibrant acidity on the palate. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

Country: France

Region: Bergerac

Grape: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc

Volume: 75cl

ABV: 11.5%

Vintage: 2021

Suitable for Vegans: Yes

Suitable for Vegetarians: Yes

Food pairing: Try as an aperitif or with sushi, smoked fish or goat’s cheese.

Riesling Andi Knauss 2020, Wurttemberg, Remstal, Germany

Andi Knauss, who now is in his early thirties, started to work together with his father at their family estate in the Remstal region, east of Stuttgart, in 2004 as the fourth generation. Vineyard land here is expensive, but Andi has slowly built up the estate parcel-by-parcel, sometimes just a row, and today he works 15 hectares of vineyards.

This great Riesling is very easy drinking, refreshing and crisp, with aromas of green apples and lemons, and some spice and herbal elements.  It has a great acidity and delivers lemony citrus notes with a hint of salinity.

Grapes: Riesling

Abv: 12%

Bottle: 750ml

Pair with spicy foods, South East Asian dishes with a bit of heat.

Savagnin Ouillé Marie-Pierre Chevassu-Fassenet 2018

Les Granges-Bernard is a wonderful old Jurassien farm surrounded by pastures on the plateau behind Menétru, and it is here that Marie-Pierre Chevassu-Fassenet was brought up with her three sisters. Her mother Marie came from a family of vignerons and her father Denis farmed mainly cows.

The Savagnins, which come from En Beaumont, are aged in three locations: a small amount in a loft, another small part in a semi-underground cellar, and three-quarters underground, meaning, as is classic for Château-Chalon, less temperature variation during ageing, aiming at finesse and elegance.

A deliciously funky Jura white made by a natural wine hero. Citrus peel, flaky sea salt and crisp stone fruit. Amazing with cheese!

Fun fact: ‘Ouillé’ translates to ‘topped up’ in reference to filling the barrels up so as to prevent oxidisation.

Country: France

Region: Jura

Grape: Savagnin

Volume: 75cl

ABV: 14%

Vintage: 2018

Suitable for Vegans: Yes

Suitable for Vegetarians: Yes

Food pairing: Treacle-roasted ham studded with cloves, pan-seared chicken thighs with morels and white wine sauce, nutty alpine cheeses, or butternut squash risotto with rosemary and hazelnuts.

Piccola Peste Rosso Veronese IGT 2019

Terre di Pietra is a relatively recent winery, based in the eastern section of the Valpolicella region. It started off in 2005 when a talented, passionate woman, Laura Albertini, just 25 years old, was given a bit of garage space at her father-in-law’s house in which she could make wine.

Their vineyards, some 4 hectares, are located in 5 small hillside plots ranging from 200 to 600 meters above sea level. The historic area is characterized by very dark soils rich in sedimentary stones, hence the name Terre di Pietra (Stone soils). In the Marcellise area the land is rich in white limestone. Both soils are very poor and this results in low yields and wines with rich tannins and good acidity.

This valpoliicella is a wild and wonderful light red with buckets of tart cherries and fresh rosemary. Serve it slightly chilled to taste it in all its glory.

Country: Italy

Region: Valpolicella

Grape:  Corvina 60%, Molinara 10%, Rondinella 30%

Volume: 75cl

ABV: 11.5%

Vintage: 2019

Suitable for Vegans: Yes

Suitable for Vegetarians: Yes

Food pairing: Go traditional here with Northern Italian salami or a simple tomato and balsamic bruschetta.

Morgon Classique Domaine Jean Foillard 2019

The Jean Foillard estate has a total surface of eleven hectares next to the fabled Côte du Py hillside, which is in fact an extinct volcano and has a number of different soil compositions. On Foillard’s estate, the vineyards grow on slopes with crumbly schist soil that give Gamay a unique expression. Foillard now runs his estate with minimal intervention, though he chooses not to subscribe to any certification, despite adhering to many of the stipulations for organic and biodynamic.

This is a natural, fleshy, complex Gamay. Although not officially certified organic or biodynamic, the Morgon wine from natural producer Jean Foillard is very pure – unfiltered, unfined, and unsulphured. The colour is ruby red with aromas of cherry, rhubarb and blackberry which evolve into dark chocolate. On the palate it’s extremely refreshing – bright sweet fruit is complemented by a silky smooth tannin structure. This is a bottle of Beaujolais which goes to prove that it can be both accessible and bright, yet also complex and serious at the same time. Delicious.

Country: France

Region: Beaujolais

Grapes: 100% Gamay

Volume: 75cl

ABV: 13%

Vintage: 2019

Suitable for Vegans: Yes

Suitable for Vegetarians: Yes

Food pairing: Honey-roasted poultry and light game, soft mature cheeses, butternut squash with puy lentils and terrines made with dried fruits such as cranberries or figs.

Marsala Superiore Oro 2017 Vigna La Miccia

This is a quite distinctive an innovative style of semi-dry Marsala first created by Marco Bartoli back in 1985.

Considered one of Sicily’s winemaking pioneers for his long-standing commitment to the native Sicilian white grape varieties, Grillo and Zibibbo. He produces them on two separate estates: the first in Marsala, in Sicily’s south-west corner, the other on the small island of Pantelleria, south-east of Sicily.

In 1982 De Bartoli created ‘Vigna La Miccia’, classified as an ‘Oro’ or gold Marsala, which is a sweeter, fresher dessert wine produced using a cold vinification process; it reveals an intense bouquet of Grillo and Inzolia grapes.

Fruity and elegant palate with flavours of raisins and dried figs, caramelised walnuts, and freshly ground coffee.

Country: Italy

Region: Marsala, Sicily

Grape: Grillo

Volume: 500ml

ABV: 18%

Vintage: 2016

Suitable for Vegans: Yes

Suitable for Vegetarians: Yes

Food pairing: A classic sweet wine for chocolate or coffee desserts (obviously a Tiramisu would be heavenly) but you could also wander off-road and serve this chilled alongside some aged Parmigiano-Reggiano to highlight the saline, nutty complexity of the cheese.
